Learning methods and activities

Lectures, exercises and project work.

Compulsory assignments

  • Lab exercises

Further on evaluation

To pass the exam, at least 75% of exercises must be approved. Folder assessment provides basis for final grade in the subject. The folder includes a written final exam of 50% and a project of 50%. The result for the parts is entered in% -points, while grading for the entire folder (final grade) is given as letter grade.
Re-sit examination: March.
